My mums had a horrible life, she's been sexually abused, racially discriminated against. 2 of her children have passed away, she's been through a string of abusive relationships and now spends her days looking after her disabled child (my brother) I've spent a lot of my life listening to my mum, she's told me painful stories about her childhood since I was really young, she's cried on me many times and ive always tried to help. I've pushed away my dad and no longer see him because she hates him, I missed so many days of college just to babysit my brother when she wanted to go out, I nearly got fired from my job because I took to many sick days in order to be with her and help her. When I was 18 I moved in with my boyfriend and his mum so I could be closer to work (this to her was complete abandonment) I still came home twice a week and did all I could to help her with my brother. I'd call her everyday and listen to her pain and try to offer comfort and advice. She never listens to me, she never asks me about my life and when I tell her something exciting she will dismiss it or turn it into something about her self. I'm living with her and my step dad and brother again right now due to lack of money. But soon I will be moving out again with my boyfriend. When I told her this she told me yet again I was abandoning her and my brother and I dont care about them and I'm selfish. Is she right? Should I be more supportive due to what she's been through? Am I not doing enough?
